When Jessy Mendiola posted photos from her birthday trip to Boracay island this month, netizens couldn’t help but admire the actress’s flawless looking skin. But the 29-year-old actress admitted that even she has days when her skin is not perfect.
“Oh yes I do. Meron promise. But I think it basically boils down to taking care of yourself talaga. It happens. It’s normal so why would you feel bad when you have breakouts? Pag time of the month di ba yung mga babae and especially pag may mga hormonal period. So talagang kailangan na tanggapin mo ng buo and that’s why there’s Cathy Valencia to take care of your skin when that happens. I think it’s just really important that you get to take care of yourself talaga. Give yourself what you deserve,” she shared.
After tying the knot with husband Luis Manzano last February, Jessy said she makes sure to make her self-care routine a priority.
“You have to also take care of yourself, siyempre it’s your responsibility to take care of yourself at home. At home you have to be religious pagdating sa skin care mo or even the food intake and water intake you have to take care of yourself talaga. It’s true that you really deserve it kahit sino pa. You only have one body. You should take care of your body,” she added.
The new Cathy Valencia Advanced Skin Care ambassador also admitted how marriage has changed her in some ways like her sense of fashion.
“Oh yes. (Before) I never wore pink But now my bag is pink. I’m wearing pink. Parang nasabi ko, ‘Parang naging mas maarte ako (laughs).’ But I think it comes with maturity. I used to boyish kasi. I used to wear rubber shoes lang and there’s nothing bad dun di ba? I have nothing against it. Lagi lang ako naka-t-shirt at jeans. But then as you grow older nagkakaroon ng maturity,” she admitted.
In the kitchen, the 29-year-old actress and vlogger said she also started learning a lot of new things including requested dishes from her husband.
“May one time I cooked him beef Wellington. Ang hirap gawin. Kaya nga nakiusap ako sa friend ko na chef. Sabi ko, ‘Tulungan mo naman akong gawin ‘to. Nagla-lambing siya ng beef Wellington! (laughs)’ Anong alam ko sa beef Wellington? Ayun finally nagawa ko for him tapos natuwa siya. Pinapaulit niya,” she shared.
